Power of darkness is broken
Broken are the heavy chains
Chains that kept me accepting darkness
Darkness that now no longer remains
God in rich mercy sent His Son to deliver
Deliver me from the power of darkness
Darkness flees the embracing light
Light of the Kingdom I now possess
He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed usinto the kingdom of the Son of His love, Colossians 1:13 NKJV

Blessings in the Lord
Of grace, love, mercy,
Faith and hope in Christ
And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 1:14
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 1 Peter 1:3
Hope is a Promise,
Hold fast to it without wavering.
Hope is Living, through God’s
Mercy in Christ’s resurrection.
Hope is Grace and God.
Hope’s in you and me.
Hope is an Anchor,
That’s sure and steadfast-cling to it.
Hope is ours for the Future.

“No more rain Lord”
A wet flooded Houston crys
“Rain Lord, we need rain ”
And flood waters displacing
Our Nation is on its knees
May God’s mercy be upon us
Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee. Psalm 33:22
Bound about my neck,
Written on my heart’s tablet,
See Mercy and Truth.
I will keep them very close.
If they never leave,
I will find high esteem and
I will find favor,
With God and with all mankind.
This is the word of the LORD.
Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man.
Proverbs 3:3-4 NKJV
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever. Psalm 23:6 NKJV
